Video: 1929 Reasons to Plant a Victory Garden
Dear brothers and sisters,
The growth of debt in the United States is incredible. The federal government now owes $27 trillion that it can’t pay. Up from 2.2 trillion 40 years ago.
The country as a whole, including the private sector, owes $83.7 trillion… that it can’t pay.
Prices have started to rise as a result of the increased money supply -just look at the prices of organic fruits and vegetables. Inevitably, interest rates will skyrocket to reflect the depreciation of the currency.This will pop the housing bubble.
The response will be one and the same:-
Print more money.
Tragically enough the unemployment rate is 7.9%. Millions of renters are behind on their payments.
A chain reaction of bankruptcies is in the offing.
It seems to us, brothers and sisters, that growing our own food is no longer an option.It is a necessity. Every backyard, a Victory Garden, every front yard, an heirloom apple orchard, every vacant lot, a community garden. Every school, an edible schoolyard.
In your kitchen, right now, start that tray of wheat grass , that tray of arugula, that tray of broccoli sprouts.
Plant a Victory Garden by way of proclaiming that come what, may you will see us through and build here a garden for the American spirit.

As a symbol of hospitality, the pineapple has a cultural association with the idea of—welcome—and has been used traditionally as a gift when meeting someone new in cultures all over the world.
Pineapple also has many health benefits and is loaded with calcium, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C, and is rich in manganese, a trace mineral the body uses to build bone and connective tissues.
Buckwheat Groats are buckwheat seeds that have been hulled. Subtly flavored when raw, buckwheat develops an earthly, nutty taste when roasted, long used as a tasty cereal-type grain called kasha.
This gluten-free grain can be substituted for wheat, oats, rye or barley. You may also grind it into a flour to use in buckwheat pancakes or combine with wheat flour to use in baked goods.
